Digital CSIC is the institutional repository of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), designed for organising, archiving, preserving and disseminating via open access the intellectual output generated as a product of CSIC’s research activities.
The library handles the delegated archiving of old and recent research outputs by researchers at the Botanical Institute of Barcelona. In order to achieve this, the library keeps track of the scientific publications, creates standardized registers in Digital CSIC, and when the signed licences allow, archives a full text version of works.
Also, when editorial policies are not enough clear, the library manages the application of permissions for publishing articles and other works in Digital CSIC.
In addition, the library advises researchers about open access policies which should be fulfilled in order to obtain research funding, especially in relation to the European Union program Horizon 2020.
